Most of us know of the car crash Romney was involved in during his mission to France. He was declared dead at the scene, but was not. If I remember correctly, the injured mission president returned to the states for a period of months to deal with his wife's death, leaving the mission without leadership. Romney became the defacto leader of the mission, rallying and motivating the other missionaries who had been demoralized by the terrible accident. He increased the yearly mission baptism goal by 40% up to 200, which they met--the most in the mission for a decade.
Romney said his life changed after that experience. He realized he wanted to live life with seriousness of purpose thereafter. Indeed he has. His life story is one of leadership, character, success, purpose, and values.
What gives me hope today is that Romney has the truth on his side. To put it simply, Mitt Romney is qualified and worthy to be our nominee, while Newt is not. I'm not going to list the contrasts between Mitt and Newt because that would take all day. It will suffice to say that Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich are polar opposites when it comes to character, leadership, conservative values and morality. They chose different paths in life and I think it's pretty clear that Romney's path in life has been one of service and decency, while Newt's has been all about elevating himself, leaving a wake of destruction in his personal life, and in the GOP. He's now in the process of transforming our party from one of promoting freedom, free enterprise, and family values, to one of hypocrisy, bigotry, and stupidity.
Romney looks a little worse for the wear today, but I believe that he will be able to recover from a bad week, and rally our party to reject the 'transformational' Newt. It's not going to be easy, though! He's battling a very silver-tongued lying devil, Obama, and both the left and rightwing media. He needs our support and prayers.
I've said over the past few days that I will leave this party if Newt becomes the nominee. But it's not really a matter of me leaving the GOP. If he wins, there won't be any party left.
